Toy stroller, WWII camp

Alicia Gonzalez wrote "Hi Sandra!
While looking for vintage pictures of girls playing with dolls, I saw this one."

It's from the photo archive website of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the caption says: "A young Jewish DP girl poses with a doll and toy stroller in the Feldafing displaced persons camp. Pictured is Reisele Kirkel."

It may be a toy stroller, but it has a lot in common with a wheelbarrow. If anyone happens to find a photo of this or a similar "stroller," or sees one somewhere, pleaes leave a note! With two front "feet," stands, it might have one wheel, or two, or perhaps even none.

The photo is a link.
